This is a sweet version of an Impossible Pie. It's very easy to make and can be made successfully using a glutenfree flour blend. Serve chilled. This tart has a moist dense texture with great flavours. Really any combination of citrus can be used for this recipe -lemons, limes, madarines, orange *To make this dish gluten free- ensure gluten free flour and icing /confectioners sugar are used*
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup caster sugar (aka superfine sugar)
- 1⁄2 cup plain flour or 1⁄2 cup gluten-free flour
- 100 g slivered almonds, toasted
- 1 cup desiccated coconut
- zest of one orange
- 1⁄4 cup orange juice (1 to 1.5 oranges)
- 1⁄2 cup lemon juice (1 to 2 lemons)
- 125 g butter, melted
- 1 cup milk
- Preheat your oven to 160 degrees centigrade.
- Grease a 24cm pie dish. (The pie will totally fill this dish). You can use a smaller pie dish with high sides or any oven-proof dish large enough to take the mixture.
- Place all of the ingredients in a food processor and process for one minute.
- Pour mixture into the prepared pie dish and bake 30-40 minutes. When cooked the top will be golden and the filling should be just a little wobbly when the dish is shaken.
- The tart will continue to set as it cools. Serve the tart chilled and dust with icing sugar just prior to serving.
- (Note: to toast the almonds- add them to a dry non-stick frypan and stir over heat until lightly golden and toasted.).
This is delicious! However, mine separated into two layers - a bottom custardy layer and a top coconut/almond topping...I'm thinking I may not have processed it long enough?
Very nice dessert! The citrus and coconut flavors work well together. I love the crunch of the almonds! I used fluten-free flour with great results.
Very tasty and easy to prepare. I only used 3/4 cup of sugar and found it sweet enough. All the family gave it thumbs up-not just coeliac member
